We do not have regular picking hours this year, due to the unprecedented irregularity of this seasons raspberry crop. The berries are taking longer to ripen, so we must close for ripening days. We update Facebook and our hotline daily with the latest picking information.
Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to closing time for picking.
This website is not updated daily. Open times are subject to change due to inclement weather and crop availability. For the latest update, please call the farm hotline at 248-831-1004 or check Facebook.
The farm is situated on 40 idyllic acres in Ortonville, Michigan. We only cultivate 5 acres, as we grow what we can hand weed. The rest is left natural and sustains a rich population of wildlife. We have acres of woods and marshland that is left untouched. Our proudest contribution to the land is 6 acres of wild pollinator preserve. We've planted native wildflower and grass species and leave it in peace for bees, butterflies and bats.
Due to the setting of the farm, we do not have wifi or a reliable signal and are unable to accept credit card payments. CASH OR CHECK ONLY, PLEASE.
Sandhill Crane in Pollinator Preserve
We are an IPM farm focused on sustainability. Our mission is to grow food that is not just healthy for people, but also for the environment. We are not organic, but use organic practices whenever possible, including hand weeding, OMRI sprays, natural fertilizers and crop rotation. We take our responsibility to the land and the future of the planet with solemn dedication.
We are an entirely you-pick farm. We do not pre-harvest any crops for sale. Our customers get the best of everything (no seconds) and the satisfaction of harvesting their own food.
Our family purchased the farm from Barb and Bill Middleton in 2014. We are proud to continue the tradition of feeding our community and tending the land. The relationship between our families did not just end at the sale. In 2016, Carrie Janiga (co-owner) married Jason Middleton (Barb and Bill's nephew). It's a beautiful story. If you're interested in hearing it, just ask.
